My week in meals – w/c 21/10/18

With a big shop needed to replenish the store cupboard, it was a case of working with bits and pieces to use up what was left. I like the inventiveness and creativity that this requires and find that curries and stir fries generally lend themselves well to this kind of cooking.

The highlight of the week was the pakoras. I don’t often fry at home but had a craving for freshly made pakoras, homemade ones are so much better and less greasy than you get from the takeaway.
